Review: The World’s Greatest Blackjack Book
Ok, you kind of know how I usually approach ambitious titles, I honestly think it’s inappropriate to title the book you wrote ‘The World’s Greatest X Book’, I mean even if it is actually the greatest book about that subject. This book though is written by someone who has a Ph.D. on the subject, so it might actually be the best book about the subject.
The book starts on a more philosophical tone, and asks questions like Who Pays For the Glitter? Why Play Blackjack and the Losing Frame of Mind and covers both the roads for winning and losing. Part two focuses on the game, the rules and basic plays, errors, strategies, and everything related to the mechanics of the game. Part three dives into subjects like where to play, choosing a casino, the best kind of dealer, where you can play in the States and Canada. The entire part four deals with the dealer (pun intended). Actually, I personally find this part very interesting because it’s usually an overlooked part of the game but it’s a very important part of the game in my opinion. Part five teaches you how to Play Smart (without a system) and acts more like a coach and teaches how to control your emotions, staying ahead of the dealer, keeping clear of the casino and even getting change for tipping.
The book has 12 parts in total and I’m not going to go ahead and tell what each of the chapters covers, it covers a shit load of information about the game. Even though the book is kind of outdated in 2017, it’s still packing a ton of great information both about the game and the mindset.
Not sure if I would say it’s the World’s Greatest Blackjack Book, but it’s most definitely the worlds most thorough blackjack book!
